Tonight's show

On tonight's show, we talked to Cindi Creager, director of national news at the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD), about GLAAD's recent nationwide survey of attitudes about LGBT people and civil rights. The survey found that two in 10 people reported having a more favorable opinion of LGBT people than they did five years ago, and 75 percent of people favor legal status for same-sex partnerships in the form of civil unions, domestic partnership or marriage. Almost as many oppose laws that prohibit gays and lesbians from adopting children. You can read more about the survey here.

To lead in our interview with Cindi, our engineer Patrick played "A Change is Gonna Come" by The Gits.
